Exciting New Faculty Opportunity, University of Arizona

This position will focus on the interface between geochemistry and microbiology across the entire mining life cycle from natural backgrounds to ore formation to geochemical exploration to mineral processing to remediation of mining wastes. It is motivated by the need to better understand the long-term impacts of mining, particularly how abiotic and biotic processes interact to control diagenesis of mine wastes. Although mining is a major driver for this position, the skill set desired also applies to soil formation processes more generally. Understanding the environmental factors that drive biogeochemical dynamics in Earth surface materials, including disturbed environments, such as mine wastes, is essential to improving our capacity to manage and maintain environmental quality in the face of a rising demand for mineral resources as well as global environmental change.

This position has specific leadership expectations: a leadership role in the Center for Environmentally Sustainable Mining and as part of the leadership team for the campus-wide Lowell institute for Mineral Resources.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop a wide-ranging portfolio of industry-, foundation-, and federally- funded research related to mining. Preference will be given to candidates who will also integrate well with new and existing cross-college efforts pertaining to Earth surface processes, especially those that relate to soil formation, reclamation of mine sites, and contaminated site remediation.

The position involves teaching one three-credit course per year. This course will be developed at the undergraduate and graduate level focusing on reclamation and remediation of degraded lands, an area of demand among incoming students. Extramural funding opportunities in this focal area include industry partners as well as traditional federal agencies.

The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, collaborative, and externally funded research program, including publishing and presenting their research to the scientific community, and to work with other members of the University of Arizona community, including collaborating faculty, researchers, and students from UA and other institutions to promote the mission and vision of making UA an international leader in sustainable mining. The appointee will contribute to teaching and mentoring, student engagement, community outreach, university service, and efforts to encourage diversity and participation of members of underrepresented groups in university activities. The appointee will help develop innovative approaches to expand collaborations with community and business partners.

Apply here for this position: https://uacareers.com/postings/34279

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
